The flowers by the house were spared. You can see the yard beyond is well coated.
No more cukes. And I'm GLAD.
Why do I not seem upset? Because we had a WHOPPING 96 frost free days this year---a full ELEVEN days more than last year. I am thrilled! Those of you with "normal" growing times can't begin to imagine how hard it is to get things like tomatoes and peppers . And I'm not going to even justify some of those short season tomatoes. I like Brandywines. 90 days. And I got it!!
Now then. I have gotten sooooooo many questions about the Agribon fabric that I used on my potatoes/broccoli/cauliflower and strawberries.
And first off ------I DO NOT HAVE ANY (ANY!!!!) affiliation with the company. It's just the one I chose to use. And I only brag it up because IT WORKS. I hate sounding like a commercial.
I dislike product endorsements.....but if something works, and works WELL--I'll shout it from the rooftops.
(and likewise-if something SUCKS ((like HughesNET)) I will tell you that also!)
So--I got the Agribon 15 from Johnny's Selected Seeds. Please don't tell me if it's cheaper somewhere else or blah blah blah. This is just where I ordered it from. Here's the link.
I bought the 118" x 250 ft roll---$47.50.
Expensive? Heck yea! BUT---so is MY time and it's MY food and it WORKS.
I am also incredibly cheap. It's so much cheaper buying a roll this size than the 50ft roll. I have a LIFETIME supply of it now.....for less than fifty bucks. Well worth it to eat broccoli without worms. A tiny price to get to eat ALL my strawberries---instead of the birds getting them
Sorry to be "commercial-y". It's good stuff.
Have a WONDERFUL week--I'm going to go clean up dead stuff. Haha--no more cucumbers!!
